Sandy's Surprise -- Miracle Cure for Morning Sickness!

Read All of Sandy's Surprise -- A Pregnancy Journal

The day before yesterday was AWFUL in terms of feeling sick! We went to WalMart, and I had to leave because I felt so out of sorts. Well, in the car on the way home, I kept dry heaving and retching, and when we got home, I puked.

I was in so much pain (hips, back, head) and felt so miserable I was crying.

Finally, I made this recipe my mom gave me for morning sickness, and it helped so much! It's an East Indian recipe, and it works miracles. I'm posting it here if anyone wants to try it.

Ingredients:

Buttermilk
Water
½ tsp of diced jalapenos if you like things spicy
A small piece of fresh ginger
Salt to taste

Directions:
The buttermilk and water should be in a 1:1 ratio. So if you use 2 cups of buttermilk, use 2 cups of water. Pour the buttermilk, water, fresh ginger and jalapenos into the blender. You can add salt to taste if you'd like. Blend for 2-3 minutes until frothy at top. Chill for 30 minutes and drink. It's so yummy! It's great for calcium, morning sickness, and dehydration.

Hope this helps someone out there!

The morning sickness is definitely not my best friend but I know it means the baby's healthy, so that's the part I (try to) keep focusing on.

I was so sure that morning sickness would be a thing of the past come the second trimester, but I've been reading that some women have morning sickness throughout their pregnancies! No! I don't think I can take another seven months of this!

Seven more days till our ultrasound!
